"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain
April

If I prefer to learn one pronunciation system( British, American), can I understand someone who speaks the other one ?

    I'm a British English native speaker @Mehrdad and understand American English fairly well (though mainly through watching American movies). Americans sometimes find British English a little different but usually we can understand eachother reasonably well.

    Thank you for answering.
    I'm not a native speaker. Is it the same for me too? Is there any nonnative advanced speaker here to Share his/her experience?

    I think it really depends on what accent you are used to. I find many students prefer American English because of all the American movies they watch or because they had a teacher with an American accent @Mehrdad.
